WOW! How time flies!

Here is a quick update that is up-to-date.
We have moved into Davie's parents house. We are house sitting while davie's parents are on a mission in New York (YEA!!!) We are loving having a garden and a beautiful yard to plant flowers and pull weeds. secretly chris loves to pull weeds, especially dandylions in grass :) weeeeird!! For Davie's birthday we set up a projector outside and watch a movie on a big screen. It was alot of fun to see our friends. We love them and say "THANK YOU FOR COMING!" Sadie and Buffy also loved having people over. Motly because they were able to steal any unattended hamburger or hotdog.

In other news, Chris got a job working at the U of U! :) She loves it there and is excited to start doing dialysis in the hospital. The best part is that they will pay half tuition for both of us. WE ARE VERY EXCITE! :D Davie is still attending the U and working on is Batchlors degree in Communication, and is Library science degree. He is even taking classes this summer with his full time job at the library.

Lastly, we are still looking for a house. We are being very picky and want to find the perfect house. We'll have a big house warming party when we get it, so keep your eyes pelled for the invite.

Keys locked in the car. Hey it happens.

So Chris and i have been really enjoying our weekly Wednesday night Dates. We've done some fun stuff, and its been a great thing to look forward to. This last Wednesday though was a true test for me.
Chris and I invited our friends Dan and Kyli out to eat with us at this great Indian restaurant, The Star of India. We got there all excited. I dont know what happened, because I am very good at always checking my pockets before I go anywhere, even getting out of the car. Well, I parked the car and jumped out with everyone else. Locked the doors once everyone had left the car, and marched all happy toward the parking exit. Chris says, umm, is the engine still running?
Yes, acutally, it was. I had looked the car with the engine running inside a parking garage! I was almost hysterical. I couldn't stand it. Thats when Chris jumped in. She said, lets call someone to bring something to open the car and we'll go eat while they are getting to the parking lot. I was way frustrated but agreed. After I took a few long moments to breathe camly, I relaxed and we had a great evening. Our friend Will showed up just as we'd finished eating and we opened up the car with these great hot dog roaster rods we have. Date night saved!

Out of the Darkness, and Into ReBlogging

So I know that you'll all be impressed, I'm taking the time to break our almost year-long boycott to grace you with my words once again ;)
How is everyone? (that's an invitation to commment on this post ;)
We are doing super well. After a grueling 9 month period, our refinance went through and we are now living sweet with a 4.875 percent interest rate on our condo. Woot Woot... or I guess its actually w00t w00t... (Check the newest edition of the Webster's dictionry. i'm serious, woot is now officially a part of the English language. Now we need to work on LOL.)

So since we were able to get our condo refinanced we are buying a house. We didn't think we'd be jumping in so quick but we found a house, put an offer on it and now we're waiting to here from the bank, since it's a short sale. Grantsville had better be ready for us, cause we're about to rock their horse owning boots off! (I hear that a lot of people in Grantsville have horses... and boots for that matter) We offered $93,000 even though it was listed at $124,000 at the time. What can we say... we're always looking for a steal! We were the only offer since they put it up for sale in July, so we might pull it off!

In other news, Chris continues to be incredible, amazing, wonderful, and in possesion of that innate ability to always know what I need and have it ready for me. She made cookies and we took them around to some of the investigators in our ward. I love Missionary Work! Anyways, not only did she have the cookies all wrapped up in baggies and with a super inspiration message attatched to them, she had also made me a pizza to eat. I don't know how she knew I was hungry.. or that I really wanted pizza for that matter... Oh, I forgot to mention, that she pulled all this off while recovering from a back injury from snow boarding. Yeah, I don't know how she does it either.
In other news, our frined Gigi has a new, much kinder, sweeter, and loving cat friend. Come on over to meet Leonard (Lenni). He will then spend the next hour either waiting for you to hold him (I dont recommend this route because he will meow until you pick him up and likely push you over as he pushes against your legs), or he will spend the hour in your lap, or cuddling your neck like a baby. yeah, he's definately helping with the baby hunger here. So men, if you are suffering from spousal hypochildhunger then have them come visit Lenni. She'll be cured instantly!

We would like to thank everyone for being our buddies, and for those that read this, remember, we asked how you were doing, and we ask that in all seriousness... we are not the kind of people who give off greetings and invitations unsincerly. We are excited to hear from you!
